delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest golfers in the world, taking questions on his taxes and that old fair share of his. mickelson explaining why he backed off on gripes that more than 60% of the his income goes to the government. >> my apology is, for talking about it publicly because i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change over these issues. i love this state. i grew up here. i love it here. and i'm certainly concerned for it. i never had a problem paying my fair share because, i know that there are very few countries in the world that let you do what you do and, live in this environment. bill:
complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch, and he was wearing an orange shirt, and mccain was wearing only aviator glasses. >> stephanie: all right. rush limbaugh. >> it was like a pukefest. it was right out of banana republic. i have never seen gravelling sucking up, butt kissing, hillary clinton's testimony. and she lost her cool at one point. by the way she opened up crying, which is part of the script. >> stephanie: human. oh it's scripted. >> yes. >> it's part of the clinton script. >> don't you guys know anything yet? part of the skriment was her illness and concussion and when that got proved wrong, it had to be her emotions are part of the script. >> stephanie: karl you are good when you can fake a blood clot you are a very accomplishes actress, app

information. >> ifill: republican john mccain pressed clinton on why u.s. consular staff evacuated from libya to germany weren't questioned sooner. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that they-- that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on-- the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. so here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. now, if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there instead of saying, no, we couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen
foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent invention that only our rose about 5 under years ago in mesopotamia -- 500 years ago. what was the last conventional conflict that we have seen? 2008 when russia invaded georgia. there are thousands of people dying in countries like afghanistan, a rock, syria, -- mali. these are not conventional wars . we should not be surprised it has ever been thus and it will hus.ys pabe t they are the norm. we better be ready for the kind of wars we're seeing now. we're not going to be out of the business of fighting insurgencies. host: how is the u.s. military doing? how does the military prepare itself for future wars of this kind? guest: the

-- creepy. >> but look at that togetherness. >> we did have that. john mccain, mitt romney, marco rubio, newt gingrich, all you know talking about climate change saying we need to address it. what change? two things. first of all, the great recession. when people are concerned about the economy, issues that are important like climate change fall down the scale. the second, the rise of the tea party. are you willing to work with the other side? newt gingrich took a lot of heat for that ad with nancy pelosi during the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, mite it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissio emissions,
paul, and this is also a look at -- the faces of the republicans, rand paul, ron johnson and john mccain looked so pathetic. and to me, there's something called decorum. and when rand paul sits there and to the second highest ranking official in our country and someone who has done a spectacular job says i would have had your job, that's pathetic. that's the amateur hour. and that's the republicans. >> willie. >> he's got a right to challenge her on it. he's not supposed to sit there. >> that is nir jtheir job. >> and just celebrate you. >> i would have relieved you of your duty? >> that's an idiot. >> kelly o'donnell, you were up on the hill yesterday. aside from all the fireworks, we saw some good pieces of videotape there. did we learn anything new actually about what happened on september 11th in benghazi? is there any new information to come out of that hearing? >> well, there were some threads and details that were interesting, i thought. secretary clinton talked about the fact that they did not have access to the surveillance video that showed what went on for a period of weeks. i
as republicans newfound religion, i'm giving them props, this is not new for them either. john mccain, before he was against the dream act was a co author, a co sponsor of the dream act. it was all about politics. i would agree with anna, timing is everything, and now after they got their butt kicked they want to follow through on what they started years and years ago. unfortunately, the latino population has been a pawn in the political game. if you want to be here, you're a part of the game. >> speaking of the gop. i want you to listen to bobby jindal, he's talking to his fellow republicans. >> we must not be the party that protects the well off so they can keep their toys. we have to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious, it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. >> he's not the only one giving that sentiment, paul ryan gave a similar sentiment this morning on meet the press. is this what your party needs, tough love? >> yes, we need to not sugar coat it, we need to learn the lessons of the last election, i think governor jindal is correct, i think paul ryan is right, i
introducing you and it brought me back to my first days in the senate when you and john mccain, vietnam veterans, workled together in a noble task to establish normal relations with vietnam which continue to this day and to deal with the controversial, contentious issue of p.o.w.'s and m.i.a.'s. i came here as a brand new senator, on behalf of pete peterson, the congressman from florida, who had been named first ambassador to vietnam by president clinton, pete peterson himself a five-year prisoner of war as an air force pilot and you two did an extraordinary job moving him forward and giving him the chance to serve. thank you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism
with secretary clinton and senator mccain to introduce my senior senator and my friend, senator john kerry. i have the privilege speaking for a man i know will continue in the tradition of john quincy adams and christian herder as great secretaries from the commonwealth of massachusetts. although john learned much about diplomacy overseas and in the senate, he would be the first to tell you that massachusetts is also a great teacher of diplomatic skills, whether it was negotiating his way to make the ballot as long shot underdog in a five-way heavily contested state convention back in 1982, or the way he brought labor and management to the table, locked the parties in his senate office over a long weekend, brought in duncan doughnuts and negotiated an end to the 92-day long brockton nurses strike. if anyone wants to learn diplomacy, come to our massachusetts politics. john's story is well-known to all of us, as a youth of a son of a young foreign officer and learning about foreign policy at the dinner table each night to his service in combat in vietnam. less well-known is the story of his fo
in front of this same place yesterday. he spoke just moments ago. senator john mccain just got through speaking. john kerry is actually the cheer of the committee. he served on this for 29 years. he is expected to be confirmed. >> an estimated 20.6 million people tune into what president obama is a second inauguration on tv. that is according to a nielsen survey. that's a is down sharply from the first and operation in 2009 which had annoy as of 37.8 million people. neilson said a total of 18 networks aired some part of this year's inaugural ceremony on monday. >> new nutrition labels that clearly display the number of calories and other nutrients on packages can help consumers with better food choices. a new study by the food and drug administration found that people chose healthier foods when they have a to panel system that listed the nutrients for one serving and an entire package. currently, manufacturers are given a lot of leeway when it comes to deciding how much a serving size is. the fda has not announced when they might issue changes to labeling requirements. >> here is a liv
ceiling. john mccain's decision, i support the decision. i think women are fully qualified to carry out the mission but i want to see the same physical standard requirements. nothing of the like of a change, women would have to fit the same requirements that are in place right now for men. what is your reaction? >> i think they're not too difficult to attain. young people whether they're men or women can quite easily attain the physical standards established for the forces. there are different physical forces for special operations forces, for rangers for s.e.a.l.s and so on. they're more difficult to attain but for infantry, armor, artillery units, i don't think women, young people have any problem whatsoever with them. >> i think it's interesting and people may not realize that women limited and i want to pull up the number. quinnipiac poll, should women be allowed to serve in combat roles? 75% say yes. 22% say no. also limited how far they could rank in the military. >> if you increase the number of women who are in combat roles, in combat units, you're by definition increasing the a
john mccain supports the kerry nomination. but he again criticized president obama for not taking stronger action against the assad regime. >> we are sowing the wind in syria, and we're going reap the whirlwind. and that whirlwind will be the increased presence of al-qaida and islamist groups, which are now flooding into syria, as you know. and we can do a lot more without putting american boots on the ground, and we can prevent this further slaughter and massacre and inhumanity. otherwise, we will be judged very, very harshly by history. >> i have complete understanding of where you're coming from on this and knowing your frustration and know what you're trying to say about it. what i think everybody worries about, john, is that if you have a complete implosion of the state, nobody has clear definition of how you put those pieces back together, number one. and number two, you have a much greater risk with respect to the chemical weapons. now, that's why i want to get in and see what the contingency plans are because i can't measure risk without having a sense of what's on the tab
, senator john mccain is one of the senators articulating his view, his concern that rigorous physical standards be maintained if women are going to serve in dangerous units like infantry, special forces, then he is saying the rigorous standards must apply to them as well for everyone's safety in those types of situations. you know it's going to raise a really interesting prospect the next time the military goes on a raid to get somebody like osama bin laden, will women be along. soledad. >> so what do women think about this -- overall about lifting its ban? >> reporter: you know, from the vast majority of women who have served, you're seeing a lot of support for it. look, the reality is hundreds of women have been injured in iraq and afghanistan, more than 100 women have been killed. and that is combat by any measure. so women are already serving in some very dangerous areas. this has been going on for years and it is the reality of military service in this country. the question on the table is can they make the next step, can they be allowed to make the next step into special forces,
. >> she wears the pants in that family. [ mocking laughter ] >> stephanie: john mccain said hilary got away with ducking questions because of the warm media. >> stephanie: oh absolutely. hardly reported anything. allen west. why? really? please go away now. i'm guessing he has a thought or two about chicks in the military. >> he does. >> that's where our focus should be right now to decline the middle east frustration. and i will to tell you -- if this be the case then why do we have separate hockey leagues? you know women should be out there playing ice hockey with the guys. i can't shoot a three-pointer, but there are ladies that can certainly take me to the hoop. joe, maybe they should be competing with kobe bryant. >> stephanie: don't you hate people that make stupid analogies. obviously if -- as leon panetta said if they can't pass the test. they won't be in that job. he said it could lead to the demise of the military. he facebooked about it. he said gi jane was a movie. i thought demi moore was spectacular so i was thinking -- [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: how many
defense that did not satisfy senator john mccain. >> why do we care? because if the classified information had been included, it gives an entirely different version of events. >> reporter: like mccain, there were some republicans who hillary clinton did not convince. but this was certainly a memorable way to close out her tenure, george. >> and a memorable day, today, coming up, martha. the ban on women in combat going to be formally lifted by leon panetta. it will be a big part of his legacy. but it's also something that's being pushed hard by the military itself, the joint chiefs of staff. >> reporter: true. it was actually the joint chiefs, the marine, the army and other services. but what this reflects is, the reality of the last decade of war. well more than 100 women have died in iraq and afghanistan, where the front lines have blurred. but it does take it to a new level. they could officially be part of infantry units and special forces, if they meet the physical standards. >> and that means more women in top leadership positions in the military, as well. >> reporter: that's exactly
senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren and republican senator john mccain. >>> president obama's second term barely underway. a lot of political buzz about 2016 and the next presidential election and some of the things happening fuelling that buzz. you have hillary clinton's testimony about the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya adding to the speculation about whether or not she is going to run. some consider clint's five hour confrontation as a sign of things to come. and then you have vice president joe biden shaking hands, jogging along the parade route after the inauguration, was he trying to show he is pretty fit enough to be president in four years? joining us to talk about all of this anna navarra and larry, the director for the center for paul acs at the university of virginia. larry, i want to start off with you. a lot of people say we might be seeing a preview of 2016. folks i have talked to say bill clinton making sure there are no barack obamas around the corner, clearing the way for his wife. can you see any signs? can you read the tea leaves? >> i think people ar
, what are we going to do? the tone was pretty much set by arizona senator john mccain. >> should he be confirmed, and i'm confident he will be, i'm sure we will have our disagreements which i know neither of us will hesitate to bring to the other's attention. but i know he will acquit himself in that office with distinction and use his many talents and his indefatigable persistence to advance our country's interests. and i commend his nominationing to you -- his nomination to you without reservation. >> reporter: at this point senators seem to think that john kerry will be our next secretary of state. he is not believed to be one of the more controversial nominations, and so perhaps they will save their fight for a more controversial pick. uma? uma: looks like smooth sailing for the senator. thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you. jon: well, our military faces a major transformation. the pentagonner shoe -- issuing a statement officially lifting a ban against women fighting on the front lines. right now we are waiting to hear from defense secretary panetta and the chairman of t
years of public service and testimony. senator john mccain a vocal critic of the obama's administration's response to the attack said clinton's answers left him unsatisfied. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda in mali and the recent terror attack in algeria. right now she's making what may be her final appearance on capitol hill introducing john kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he would handle those threats as the next secretary of state. >> margaret brennan thank you. "washington post" columnist david ignatius had written extensively about the engazie attacks. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the questions, whether secretary of state took responsibility, answered all the questions and put this behind her? >> she gave a good account of herself, she gave as good as she got. it was an intense session. i think on the sound
% of the hispanic vote and john mccain did better than mitt romney so republicans in very recent history were doing a lot better with it and pay a lot of attention to the policies so i think they're still listening. >> you're nodding your head, math dowd. >> they have to see at the the way the country looks today. the night after election, the problem is they're a mad men party in a modern family world and hispanic think republicans right now don't want to look at the country as 21st century but 1950s. let's go back to the 1950s. the problem the republicans have though many want to compromise and many want to do on this issue, there's a very loud shrill part of their base, huge part of their base that says no, no, no, and if they compromise on guns, if they compromise on taxes and then they compromise on immigration, it leaves them in a bad place with that base. >> that's the issue on the republican side. let me go back to david. you praised the president as the promise unleashed. climate change and you have immigration reform and guns which he also says now is at the top of his list. how does he p
. if they seem dressed fairly lightly, there are some regional -- there's john mccain, dianne feinstein, there's some regional heaters in that area. there are blankets provided, as we heard. andrea mitchell is there. we'll keep alternating between this camera and the white house doorway so we don't miss a thing. and andrea, you're seeing the senate leadership fill in. >> yeah. just as senator kerry is coming in and some of the other senators, let me give you an idea of the schedule. there will be a change of power at the state department, as you know, on wednesday of this week. hillary clinton is going before the senate and the house. she's going to be here today in her role both as a former first lady and as the secretary of state. she's going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. on thursday before the committee that he chairs still, senator kerry will be introduced by secretary clinton for his confirmation hearing. we're told then that the vote on senator kerry as secretary of state is expected to glide through. next tuesday, that will take place. and wednesday, there will be the chang
the statement. >> senator john mccain there. senator feinstein behind him. >> mitch mcconnell was the one that famously said we immediate to make this a one-term president. there he is there at coffee this morning. >> he has since said that was a political effort and once that didn't come to pass he's completely reconciled to the fact he has to work with him and get business done. i could add, anderson, the president said because he's now re-elected he has been telling his aides that this is an opportunity almost to experience his inauguration important the first time. >> al franken on the right. >> because at first -- in the original inauguration, he was so focused on the financial crisis, economic crisis, there was a national security threat on the day of the inauguration, and -- they were consumed by the crises at the moment. they almost couldn't concentrate on what was happening that day. >> 20 years ago, bill clinton was leaving right at this moment, his speech writers were still with him. taylor got in the limousine and writing the speech over to the white house. >> wow. >> didn't e
